ready for wednesday's rumble. >> well, the president's the president. he was at the u.n. giving two major speeches. he's been dealing with all sorts of international business, domestic business. he is at the white house a lot of the time preparing and i can tell you that his -- they have had to cancel times when he might or might not have been able to do preparation. it's my understanding mitt romney spent four or five days secluded somewhere. had five debates in 24 hours or 48 hours. and has senator portman with him every day on the airplane practicing. i'm here. i'm not traveling with the president or doing any of this. >> more expectations setting from senator kerrly and also making the point that being the job of president gets in the way of debate prep and leaving town and leaving washington helps for the president and doesn't hurt, wolf, picked a battleground state, nevada, to do the debate prep and going to other states. >> not far from denver, either. >> an easy jump over. also learning new details about how mitt romney's preparing for his first face to face contest with the
think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n. >> egypt now with the muslim brotherhood president, pakistan highly tumultuous. >> as you can see, it's hard to get anything from these two, aside from their now redundant talking points. and it really wouldn't matter if this was just a televised debate before one of the republican primaries. but it isn't. these two want to occupy the global stage. for the president, on the other hand, this week was fraught with political land mines as he prepared to address the u.n. and here is how he decided to address the issue of iran and its nuclear ambitions. >> so let me be clear, america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe that there is still time and space to do so, but that time is not unlimited. >> that is what international diplomacy looks like in these difficult treacherous times. but when i hear mr. romney speak about foreign affairs, i'm reminded of the words of shakespeare's mcbeth. it sounds like "a tale told by an idiot, full of
. then the explanations began to shift a little bit. susan rice the u.n. ambassador said it started as a demonstration about that video, and then involved other elements, who joined spontaneously. it's been shifting ever since. the president initially called it an act of terror. he has not done so since then but his spokesman has said since then that it is obviously self-evidently an act of terror, and now this statement from the spokesman for the director of national intelligence, who says in part, we do assess that some of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with, or sympathetic to, al qaeda. >> can i ask you, susan rice, she's under fire from peter king. of course he's a republican congressman. he's been calling for her resignation, saying she hasn't been forthcoming with the truth. so what does the white house say about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this pr
of the u.n. last week. plus, winter is fast approaching and this year blizzards and other big storms will get their own names just like a hurricane. this is a little less official. the details ahead here on the fox report. >> bill: iran's president taking a swipe at the israeli prime minister's attempt to rally the international world against tehran. last week at the u.n. general assembly here in new york, the prime minister held up this diagram of a bomb as he called on world leaders to set a red line on iran's nuclear program. iranian president, ahmadinejab, calling the drawing childish, primitive, and insulting. chief fox report correspondent jonathan hunt joins us now. the iranian president accusing the israeli leader of war mongering. what was that all about? >> remember president ahmadinejab spoke at the general assembly last week before the israeli prime minister, netanyahu. this was in a sense, ahmadinejab's response and he responded as he so often does, by hurling insult after insult at the israeli leader and the israel as a country. in general, he mocked that cartoonish-lik
at the u.n. with new accusations that the u.s. is preparing for another war. here now is the chair of the house homeland security committee peter king and former secretary of state williamson. peter king, welcome back, i want -- peter, i want to switch gears, i don't mean to be rude or anything. but the revelations today by una vision, that we have found 300 more dead mexicans as a result of fast and furious gun traffic and that 16 kids peter congress were found dead at this party just across the border. i just find this incredible, i find this eric holder story justice department incredible and i want to know where you think president obama is, this has become a horror story, much more than anybody thought possible. >> it really has and for the longest time the administration was denying, thanks to darrell issa who got to the bottom of it with his committee. the fact is it turned out to be a lot worse than even chairman issa thought it was going to be. the whole administration of justice has been terrible in the start, were it's the 911 trials in manhattan, whether he was going af
domestic concerns to the side for a time this week. the president on tuesday addressing the u.n.'s general assembly meeting. the middle east and the threat posed by iran's nuclear weapons program topped the agenda there. after his speech, the president had no follow-up meetings with foreign leaders, not even with the leader of our closest ally in the middle east, israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. prime minister netanyahu addressed the assembly thursday. and he famously used that image of a bomb with a lit fuse to make the point that iran cannot be allowed to make a nuclear weapon. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. >> joining me now, mark regev, the chief spokesperson for prime minister netanyahu. good saturday afternoon to you, sir. thank you for coming back. >> my pleasure. >> governor romney spoke with the prime minister by phone on friday after the call. governor romney spoke with reporters about possible action against iran. take a listen, and i want to talk to you about his response on the other side. >> i do not belief that in the
that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begin by asking you whether you would say that ambassador stevens and the three other americans died as a result of a terrorist attack. >> certainly on that particular question, i would say yes. they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> two days later, secretary of state clinton made it even plainer. >> what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four americans. >> keeping them honest, if the white house wants credit for quickly labeling what happened in benghazi an act of terror, can't also claim credit for prudently not calling it terrorism for so many days. whatever you think, clearly these are two candidates with some big questions to face and perhaps, they will less than 48 hours from now. that debate, a
that turkey has now asked the u.n. security council to take, quote, necessary actions against syria to stop these kind of attacks. it's interesting that that alliance meeting was called under article 4 of the nato charter as you know an attack by one is an attack by all under article 5 of that charter. it's significant that turkey has not yet invoked article 5. but, again, syria crossed the line with this mortar attack into turkish civilian areas. just as they did when they shot down a turkish fighter jet in international waters earlier this year. >> we are outraged that the syrians have been shooting across the border. we are very we getful about the loss of life that has occurred on the turkish side. we are working with our turkish friends. i will be speaking with the foreign minister later to discussion what the best way forward would be. >> so, shepard, at this late hour tonight, it's not clear where all of this is heading. >> of course, jennifer, we all know the nightmare scenario is that what is happening in syria becomes a regional conflict, not that that's begun, it certainly hasn't
you heard this? the u.n. is now looking for a global tax. now, we're calling global tax maggedden. where we would pony up a huge portion of the tax receipts into the u.n. and they would distribute them throughout the world to the needy. what do you think of this? >> i think it's incredible. first of all, we are the needy. maybe they should do it where china should write off their trillion dollars that they wrote us and more. by the way, if you look what's going on, they are serious about this where we're supposed to give more money to other countries. we don't have money for ourselves. so it's just another ploy. we'll educational background up being -- end up being, because we are run by people globe know what they're doing issues we'll be the only nation that gives. >> gretchen: i got bad news for you, you're going to be taxed 1% tax on billionaires around the world. that's part of this whole deal. >> i can imagine the people that are going to distribute the money. i've seen the people. i have buildings over there. i see them all the time. you should see the people that are going
the u.n. general assembly, a cameraman traveling with his delegation was making a covert getaway. contacting american authorities to seek asylum. >> hassan golkanbhan was reportedly apart of ahmadinejad's inner circle for several years. could be a major intelligence loss for the normally tight-lipped iranian government. with us now is the attorney for golkanbhan here in the united states paul o'dwyer. welcome to the program. so he, he came here for the u.n. general assembly, and then contacted authorities. why is he seeking asylum? >> well, he's seeking asylum because he obviously does not want to return to live in iran. >> why? >> concerns about -- first of all, he does not want to continue to live in the regime, and he is offended by how the regime treats people, about how it treats its enemies, about how it treats the iranian people, about the level of persecution there. and he also has concerns about now about his own safety. when he came here, he was, as you say, he was a cameraman with the entourage. he came here with the understanding that he was to take the deal of the --
minister tells the u.n. that the capability to enrich uranium must be stopped. >>> curious discovery. nasa's rover finds evidence of an ancient stream on mars. >>> and circular sensation, new york city makes plans for the world's largest ferris wheel. good morning. those stories and more is straight ahead. this is "first look" on
artillery. the syrian ambassador to the u.n. saying two syrian military officers were wounded. meanwhile, the turkish parliament has voted in favor of a new resolution that would authorize the turkish government to carry cross-border operations, military operations, into syria. meanwhile, some sectors of turkish society have been organizing anti-war protests in the square behind me. definitely concerned about the possible outbreak of war between these two neighbors. erin? >> thanks very much to ivan. >>> now to yemen where five al qaeda militants were killed in a u.s. drone attack. at least that's what two local security officials tell cnn today. the militants were heavily armed, carrying explosives. nic robertson knows the area very well. i asked if those killed were high value targets. >> reporter: three u.s. drone strikes have killed five suspected al qaeda militants in an area known as an al qaeda stronghold. al qaeda made gains in yemen last year. they have been rolled back to some degree by government backed by tribal militias in recent months but they still present a big problem i
day of the u.n. general assembly session. he will address the delegates latest this morning and defend the assad regime's handling of the 18-month crisis that has spiraled into a civil war. syria has been a prime focus for world leaders at the united nations over the past week. >>> we are expecting an announcement today in that mystery surrounding the location of jimmy hoffa's remains. investigators are waiting for tests on mud and clay samples from a home in suburban detroit. they searched under a shed there on friday. a tipster, you will remember, claimed he saw what appeared to be a body being buried at the site the day after the former teamster's chief disappeared back in 1975. >>> sports, sunday night football the super bowl champion new york giants falling to the philadelphia eagles 19-17 in a clash of nfc east powers. a 54-yard field goal attempt in the closing seconds by new york's lawrence tynes falling a yard short. the atlanta falcons still perfect at 4-0. matt bryant's 40-yard field goal with five seconds left giving atlanta a dramatic 30-28 comeback win over cam newton and
to do about it. let's listen. >> what is no secret, that our attempts to move forward at the u.n. security council have been blocked repeatedly. on tuesday i met with joint special representative raheemy to discuss alternative strategies, but the united states is not waiting. >> alternative strategies. any idea what they might be? >> reporter: john, i think it's a lot more of what you've been seeing. the security council has been deadlocked, unable to get some action, possibly sanctions against the regime, basically what they're doing is planning for the day after. they're kind of strengthening the opposition saying one of the main problems is that the opposition isn't unified. they're working on that, working on trying to plan for the day after training both politician, civil servants to try to provide services in the event that the regime -- and trying to strengthen sanctions in lieu of the security council being able to impose sanctions. working with a lot of other countries just trying to strengthen the squeeze on the regime. >> secretary clinton also committed some money. pl
out by the administration to defend its policies. she is our ambassador to the u.n. which makes her in many cases our ambassador to the world. she was put out there. there has to be accountability when sufficient a grievous, grievous error has been made in this case. whether she was put out there to audition to be secretary of state, whether or not she believed what she was saying, whether or not she was mistaken somebody has to pay the price, there has to be consequences. she is the one that was out there, i believe it should be her. very smart and able person, again such a serious error it has to be accountability. bill: heavy charges. peter king, than that you for your time we will see where it goes. martha: the recent spike in insider attacks known as green on blue attacks by afghan security forces could mean an earlier withdrawal for nato forces according to one source here. we'll bring in retired four-star general jack keane, former vice chief of staff of the army and a fox news military analyst. good morning, general, good to have you here. >> good morning, martha. martha: i
a republican and democrat agreeing on much besides that this week. and for the worst week, it's u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of rep
groups. ambassador john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. big picture here. what do you think the cost is to the united states on the world stage that we're continuing to discuss this infighting who knew what when and not going out and getting the people that committed this act? >> well, i think it shows that there's desorganization within the state department, within the administration, about exactly what happened and i think that is a signal of vulnerability potentially at other embassies in the middle east or around the world. i think the consequence we need most here we need to find the people who actually perpetrated the attack and either eliminate them or get them in custody and start questioning them. that's potentially on the way. of course the administration is leaking out today in the press that they're about to do that, another security violation while we're on the subject. but certainly the way the administration has handled itself in the aftermath of this tragedy has not covered it with glory. jenna: how would we appropriately go an
, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questions about his foreign policy. remember, he just said there was a few bumps in the road. iraq is unraveling. al-qaeda is coming back. afghanistan is in total disarray because of this killing of americans by afghan military people and it's because the president keeps announcing we're leaving and it's overruled his military advi
supporter of the u.n., albert gore sr. gore's father. and all of these characters by the way were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy. and the longest -- and robert byrd had 100% rating from naral pro-choice america. so do not believe the lie that these were conservative democrats who were waiting for a wink from nixon to become republicans. it was only one in 18 liberal democratic segregationists who became republican. that was strom thurmond and he's the only one whose name you know. just one more point on the southern strategy. this is -- this lie is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it were one state. no, the outer southern states and the dixiecrat states in the middle. republicans -- and the southern strategy is this idea that republicans had a secretly appealed to the democratic segregationists and the dixiecrats and suddenly we swept the south. no. republicans swept the south when the dixiecrats died out. something that's provable by looking at the history. republicans had been winning the outer southern states. texas. tennessee. kentucky. west virginia. virginia. north
the baby blue helmets from the u.n. will not be there to protect the. and neither will president obama or eric holder. what will protect you is the freedom we have under the second amendment of the constitution. there is not a government or an authority on the planet that can match that if you are ever in that situation. let me talk about one other thing real quick. this whole fast and furious situation. under the obama administration and their justice department, they sent thousands of guns to the most evil people on the planet, the mexican drug cartels. they had a massive campaign to manipulate public opinion with the whole a 90% nonsense. the president, vice president, secretary clinton, they sounded like a barbershop quartet singing that. it was not true. they were ruining the lives of honest american citizens that own firearm shops that they told to make the sales. they went ahead and make the sales and the media is reporting there are unscrupulous dealers and some they even tried to prosecute. when good federal agents down the line blew the whistle on the mess, they tried a massi
